I bought one when they first came out, last September (2017). I liked it enough to buy a backup in January (2018), as the Iron Curtain against knife importation fell here in Canada. I thought the first one I bought was a nice knife, but the second one I have is even better.
They are nice knives. The lock is interesting. Very solid lockup. You don't see the blade play you do in the standard Seki backlocks. Came sharp. I was impressed with the blade Seki put on it. Even without a choil, the handle shape allows you to choke up pretty good. It is relatively thin, as Sal said. I expected it to be thicker. My Native 5's, with 3mm blade stock, are thicker knives.
I've had some difficulty in sharpening, mainly rolling the burr from side to side at the extreme of the belly, but I've learned to deal with this by going freehand on the sharpmaker stones.
If I have one gripe, it is the clip, or rather it's location. I like tip down, for a number of reasons, but the main reason is that I find that right side tip down is the most comfortable in most grips. (To me, the clip on the Military is perfect, and I wish it was on every knife.) I've tried removing the clip, and this seems a decent option.
One day I will marry a Military clip to my user Chinook 4, and all will be right in the world. If there is ever a Chinook 5, that is my one request.
